difficult path for romney to win that electoral college without ohio, wisconsin, iowa, that midwest fortress that obama seems to have. >> when obama made the decision on the bailout that was unpopular and it now may be that that actually saves him in ohio. >> i remember doing reporting on that, and aus ten goolsby gave the pure economic advisory said don't do this. and they said mr. president we campaigned in these states, these people are getting killed we've got to do this. one of the most important decisions of his presidency. >> if he wints ohio, it's going to be because he bailed out the auto industry. >> yeah. >> there are about 800,000 we estimate, gloria, undecided voters in these few remaining battle ground states. they're all working trying to convince them. what is going to convince them. >> it's really hard to say. when you talk to republicans they tell you that late in the game, where we are, undecided voters will break towards the challenger. that's the karl rove theory. the democrats say not necessarily. maybe some disaffected democrats, but they will come back to the presiden
to leave here and fan out over the country in support of mitt romney. i will be in wisconsin tomorrow. florida the next day. maybe pennsylvania. they are going to probably decide that as we move along. but the idea was all of the supporters here tonight supporting mitt romney and paul ryan and starting tomorrow morning they will all be in the different parts of the country probably mostly in the swing states. >> greta: is there any way to when he sure, ohio tonight? i know that everyone on the republican side says governor romney is going to win and everybody on president obama's side says he is going to win. how do you measure it tonigh >> i mean you know obviously, i guess an obama rally you would feel differently. at this rally it seems like he has enormous enthusiasm. this has the feeling of a winning campaign. the enthusiasm here tonight was tremendous. if this s a is swing state i feel good about it even if the polls about even and even if obama has a lead of one or two i suspect the undecided votes are going to go to mitt romney. i have a pretty good feeling about ohio. and if

the last few days of the campaign making that case in the battleground states. romney is in wisconsin and ohio today trying to pick up the few remaining undecided voters. >> and we asked them and you to look beyond the speeches and the attacks and the ads, look to the record. >> reporter: the race is tied in nine swing states. the latest polls also show the race tightening in pennsylvania, a state once thought to be easily in the president's win column. the romney campaign is making a late push to take pennsylvania. the republicans are spending three million dollars on campaign ads there and romney will visit the state on sunday. now, let's look at the markets right now. you can see that the dow is down just by 100 points. stock gave up that early gain despite a decent jobs report. that job is being attributed to traders assessing the potential costs of superstorm sandy. back to the campaign, president obama's camp is calling the gop's effort in pennsylvania an act of desperation. but the democrats plan to increase their spending on political ads in the state. reporting live in the ne
in wisconsin romney headed to ohio where president obama is also campaigning today. recent polls show the president with a slight lead in ohio. but a new poll shows nationwide the race remains a virtual deadlock. the washington post tracking poll shows 49% of likely voters across the country support president obama. while 48% say they are voting for his challenger mitt romney. >>> new at noon community members in an east oakland neighborhood at this hour are celebrating the groundbreaking of a new business center development. the project promises about 100 new jobs for the community and would finally bring a grocery store to the neighborhood. new at noon ktvu's brian flores is at the event in mcought there boulevard in east oakland, good afternoon. >> reporter: hi, good afternoon to you as you can see behind me there is not much besides dirt and construction crews but in less than a year a new grocery store and business development is expected to arise here and give people new jobs and hopefully new hope. >>> just a few minutes ago city officials community members and business leaders
a tired and skittish electorate. mitt romney, campaigning in wisconsin, trying to erode mr. obama's support in the midwest. he took the job's numbers as support for the central plank of his campaign, but the u.s. economy has failed to recover. >> he said he was going to focus on creating jobs. instead he focused on obamacare, which killed jobs. he said he was going to cut the federal deficit in half, and then he doubled it. he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it's actually 7.9%, and that's nine million jobs short of what he promised. >> mr. romney's campaign is snapping at the heels of the incumbent president. his campaign organizers say they can and will win, but they can win only if they take the vital swing states of florida, virginia and ohio. anything less than the prospects receive for them. >> this race is very, very close. it may confound pollsters and pundits alike. it's not clear how or if hurricane sandy will affect the results, but i think we can venture this far -- president obama appears to be holding on t
on the campaign trail. take us through some of the highlights from today. >> reporter: earlier today mitt romney spoke in wisconsin and he called this his closing argument. >> words are cheap. a record is real and it's earned. real change is not measured in words. real change is measured in achiefments and four years ago candidate obama promised so very much but he's fallen. >> reporter: as for the president he argues it comes down to trust. >> you may be frustrated sometimes by the pace of change but you know what i believe. you know where i stand. you know i tell the truth. you know i will fight for your families every single day. you know that. >> reporter: as if there wasn't enough political news out there today there's this brand-new cnn/orc that shows president obama has a slight lead over mitt romney so it's a dead heat there. >> thank you for that report. >> four square is trying to do its part to get people to vote. it's launched a new app called "i voted." app users must have a primary four square account to use this service. >>> all right. i'm wyatt everhart. we continue to watch the
romney, spoke in wisconsin. that was just a short time ago. he is also on cnn.com. his opinion speech. romney wrote about bipartisanship. he says i am offering a contrast to what we're seeing in washington today. we watched as one party has pushed through its agenda without compromising with the other party. there's much gridlock and pettiness dominating while important issues facing the nation while high unemployment go unaddressed. the bickering has to end. i will end it. i will reach across the aisle to solve america's problems. >> you can read their complete opinions by logging on to our website. go to cnn.com/opinion. then go to my facebook page and tell me who you think has the most compelling vision for america's vision. we'll actually read back some of your responses at facebook.com/suzannemalveaux. >>> vice president joe biden back from the battleground state of wisconsin. he says he is stumping on the opposition home court. stansville, wisconsin, that is paul ryan's hometown just about 20 minutes north of beloit. you're looking at live pictures where the vice president is go

have made real progress." governor romney in wisconsin said the numbers show the economy is still at a virtual standstill. it takes 270 electoral votes to win the presidency and our cbs news election team estimates that 255 are solidly in the obama camp or leaning toward him. for mr. romney it's 206. so the election will come down to the nine swing states that could go either way. bob schieffer is our chief washington correspondent and anchor of "face the nation" and, atb, what do you make of how close it is in the swing states? >> well, it started out close and it is even closer now. scott, i kind of took a survey of our pollsters. they can not recall a time when these battleground states are closer than they are right now with the possible exception of ohio where the president has a teeny lead. esl of these states are in the margin of error. what that means is there are eight battleground states out there that either of these candidates could win. it's just going to come down to who gets their voters to the polls. it's going to be all about turnout. this race is an absolute dead

men on the ticket, obama, biden, ryan and romney are in wisconsin because it is that tight. and if wisconsin goes for mitt romney, that will be a shocking development. republicans lost the state by 14 points four years ago. >> geraldo: ohio. everyone is talking about the buckeye state. what about ohio, scott? >> ohio is very close. showing it tied right now. that is a state again where the democrats actually think they had the edge on the ground. almost all of the polling has shown anything from a tie to a slight obama lead. this is a state that democrats are very confident they can hang on to. the president really needs to win both ohio and wisconsin if he wants to keep his job. romney needs to win one of those two. >> geraldo: iowa? >> iowa, another tie state. this this midwest that is become the pattern. the des moines register came out and for the first time in decades endorsed the republican candidate. why? the economy is the key issue. and in all of these states what we are starting to see is voters are saying they trust romney more than obama when it comes to the eco
in five days he's in wisconsin three times, colorado twice, romney's in virginia, wisconsin, ohio, colorado and new hampshire. what can you read, if anything, into these schedules? who's worried about which states? or who's, you know, ignoring other states? what do you make of it? >> well, you know, i did notice that president obama is only going down to florida one time, i believe. >> right. >> so, you know, that's striking. you know, the polling has, i think, generally been slightly pro-romney. so, you know, i don't get the sense that they really think that florida is the best place to be spending their time. they might be writing it off. you know, i think it's really interesting to see wisconsin be such a frequent destination. i believe that romney had not gone to wisconsin for a couple, few months until he went last week or a few days ago. he's going back again. the emphasis on wisconsin right now is interesting. and i think it speaks to the idea that although romney is definitely not giving up on ohio by any means, you know, you do get a sense that they are trying to work the
. mitt romney, after finishing up at wisconsin, he's going to have two stops in ohio. joining me now is larry sabatoe. editor of the crystal ball blog. lar larry, good to have you here. ohio has been moved to tossup category yesterday. you have it as leaning democratic. are polls tightening there? and does the president have enough of an edge to see him through because he needs ohio so badly? >> we see no evidence at all. if you look at the polling averages or even if you examine individual polls, we put ohio as lean democratic, lean obama at the end of the september. we have seen absolutely no reason to change it. we see absolutely no reason to change it now. sometimes groups at rates overreact to a single private tracking number that may be shared by a campaign. as far as i'm concerned, while private trackings are good, many of the public polls are equally good. and under treat a private tracking number from a campaign or a polling source exactly the same as you would a public poll with a responsible sponsor. so i don't react as strongly as some people do to a private tracking numb
exclusively reports on the romney campaign training volunteer poll watchers to mislead voters in wisconsin. the training also teaches them how to deceive elections officials and the public about who they were associated with. they obtained romney campaign's volunteer observer, the training manual given volunteers during training sessions in wisconsin. this section raises serious concerns. rules regarding observers. volunteers are specifically told to sign in as, quote, concerned citizen, not as connected to the romney campaign. so, why is the romney campaign telling poll volunteers to be purposely deceptive? think progress obtained audio from one of the training sessions. here is the person leading the session. >> we'll have you sign in. >> animosity? they say this has been going on for years, republicans and democrats do it. it's a legal and necessary of free and fair elections, but the romney campaign doesn't want voters to know they're there. gee, i wonder why. joining me now is scott who broke the story for think progress and joe madison, nationally syndicated radio host from sirius/xm
the top by winning wisconsin. let's focus on governor romney. could he make history? he would have to win florida. virginia. he would have to win colorado. that would, just let me move that into the red column. then it gets hard from there. they say that he's in strong play in nevada, obama campaign disputes that. if he could win those two out west, that would put him in position. even if he won new hampshire, that's only four. somehow, even though he was losing the most republican of the midwestern states, ohio, he would have to also win one of wisconsin and or iowa. so it's not impossible, but if he loses the big one, he's got to almost run the board with the rest of it. >> wow. wisconsin and iowa. how are those just poll wise leaning? is that reasonable for romney or no? >> wisconsin again has had a steady, democratic lead. it's within reach. it's not out of play yet, but let's sign that one over to the president. iowa, it's interesting. you could have a small state, only six electoral votes. most polling shows the president with a slight lead. if it stays this close, the little ones l
ten points. new nbc polls shows president obama over mitt romney. in wisconsin, president obama polled at 49% with mitt romney at 46%. in new hampshire president obama polled at 49%, mitt romney at 47% and detroit press poll and cnn poll showed in colorado president obama at 50% and mitt romney at 48%. tonight president obama has an 81% chance of winning re-election. alex wagner, so mike bloomberg somehow finally made up his mind. everyone is focused on the climate change. in that article he mentions the pez's position on abortion and the health care law. so this isn't just this week. this is something that mayor bloomberg has been thinking about for some time and it is coming as the president finished the bromance tour with chris christie. it is a good week for the president. >> when you read the mayor's reasons, what was he waiting for. there wasn't a single thing that he was in line for? >> it seems to me that he is someone who has a large conception on his role on american national affairs and an early endorsement would not preserve that. the mayor's people say there is off the rec

"/nbc/marist. governor romney, 44%. in wisconsin, president obama at 49%. in new hampshire, president obama at 49%, governor romney at 47%. so the good news is that's a lead for president obama, from the democratic are perspective. the bad news is he's been dropping. in iowa, that lead was eight points, now it's six. in wisconsin, that lead is now three points, it was six. new hampshire, it was a seven-point lead, it's now two. so if you actually map it, it's shrinking very dramatically five days left until the election. are you worried about that trend? you must be. >> not at all. not at all. we had always anticipated that there would be a very, very close race. but i think, basically, what it's going to boil down to is who do we trust. and i think the polling will show that the american people trust this president. i think when you've got a situation where the president is either basically tired or leading in all of these battleground states, you've got, just the eyes will tell you that some of them are going to come out in his favor, if not all. but i think the president clearly, you've got to
. >> we see now news today that mitt romney plans on giving a "closing argument" in wisconsin as he wraps up the campaign. i guess wisconsin is an obvious choice. what are we expecting to hear here? >> well, in wisconsin the president won by 14 points last time. it seems to me that the president is defending states that he all won. he's not expanding the map and romney is chasing after him. the president got 365 electoral votes last time. he won by seven percentage points. nobody thinks it's going to be like that. it's going to be close and if obama wins, it surely won't be by the margins he won before. >> fox 5 political analyst mark plotkin tonight. >>> a new jersey lawmaker on the hot seat tonight. the daily caller is reporting senator bob menendez paid two women from the dominican republic for sex. the website says the women reached out to them claiming the senator underpaid them. a spokesperson for the senator said they will not respond to a completely false accusation. menendez has represented new jersey since 2005. >>> new charges in the penn state sex scandal. prosecutors charged
sparks is communication director for the romney campaign in wisconsin. >> the key to winning races in wisconsin is enthusiasm and voter intensity. in 2010, when republicans had historic electoral gains through the state, the story of the day was not that the democrats stayed at home. rather, the story was that the republicans turnout. >> reporter: indeed republicans are counting on gains they made two years ago when scott walker became governor and both chambers of the state legislature flipped from democrat to republican. that was followed by a recall campaign started by public- sector labor unions aided by democratic state legislators and voters. all in all, it led to the chief fact of political life in wisconsin: bitterly divided, almost permanent political warfare for almost three years now. this is state that is both energized and exhausted. >> i can't wait for it to be done. i'm just tired of all the negative things. one person trashes the other one. >> the ads all seem to be negative. you kind of tune them out when it's negative. >> it is annoying with all the calls and the
-elected? >> exactly. and i would look at iowa and wisconsin. romney has to win one of those states. if he wins ohio, then he has a shot. if he can't get ohio, he still has a plausible path if he can get wisconsin. what has to be really troubling to the romney campaign is we're seeing more and more polling in those states and they are not moving in his direction and the president's turnout particularly in ohio has been very strong, very robust. so i think those two states in particular are going to prove and looking at florida and virginia, i still think the president has a very strong chance to win in florida and my home state of virginia as well. i think they could also end up in the blue column. >> well, they have to let everybody vote but i'll get to that later on in the program. alicia, the economic argument where you talked about the jobs numbers and that's what the romney people have to say, well, a lot of that was based on how people felt about the economy. but there's been a huge shift in how people look at the economy when you look at polling, last year this time, only 21% believed the eco
halperin, take a look at nbc news poll, iowa, president up but wisconsin and new hampshire, we're talking about a really closely fought race. >> based on the totality of the public and private polling the only us in is on governor romney to depp street get to 270 electoral votes. i think governor romney starts with a challenge which is florida, north carolina, and colorado. if he can win those three, and i think he's got a decent chance in all, although the president hasn't given up on colorado and florida, then he needs to find a couple other -- a couple of options, one is to just win ohio. if he can't win ohio, and virginia also, he needs to win virginia also, okay, if he can't win ohio he needs to find another way. states of the three polls you showed as well as pennsylvania, michigan, he needs to offset a loss in ohio. ohio's the simplest and most competitive the reason they're looking at other options they can't count on ohio. if they can put our building blocks in place, they need find one or two other states, may or may not include ohio. >> and chris cillizza, iowa and wisconsin co
